The Lagos State Police Command has arrested two men identified as Razaq Oluwaseun Oke, 28 and Don-Chima George, 25, for raping a 23-year-old girl at a hotel in Lekki, Lagos.

Spokesman of the command, CSP Chike Oti, said in a statement on Tuesday that the suspects, who had been apprehended took the victim to Dallankester Hotels, Lekki, Phase One, on Friday, Daily Post reports.

According to the CSP, unknown to the victim that the duo had ulterior motives, while at the club, they mixed the young woman’s drink with a substance that made her weak and almost unconscious.

”Satisfied that the drug was beginning to affect the victim, they quietly left the club with her to Dallankester Hotels in Lekki, owned by the father of one of the suspects named Don-Chima George.

”At the hotel, they took turns to rape her. As if that wasn’t enough, they videoed the abuse.

”When the victim woke up from the induced sleep, she confronted the suspects who denied having carnal knowledge of her.

”Not satisfied, she placed a call to her elder brother complaining that she had been violated.

”The brother immediately invited policemen from Maroko Division led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Isah Abdulmajid, to the scene.

”On searching the suspects, the DPO recovered their phones and went through their video recordings where he saw a video of the suspects sexually abusing the apparently unconscious victim,” he said.



Slay queen stripped, tortured after she was accused of stealing a phone

A video of an unidentified lady being stripped naked by a group of people, who inserted pepper into her private parts for allegedly stealing a mobile phone in Benin City, went viral a few days ago and has since caused outrage on social media.

In the video, the lady was heard crying and denying she had stolen any phone, while she was being humiliated by the crowd who refused to show her mercy.


The League of Patriotic Lawyers has joined other groups who are seeking justice for the said lady. They have given Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olusegun Odumosu, 24 hours to unravel those behind the torture and insertion of pepper into the lady’s private part.

Chairman of the platform and former Student Union President of the University of Benin, Mr. Abubakar Yesufu, urged the state Director, Department of State Services, DSS, to be involved in the investigation.

In a statement on Tuesday, Yesufu said: “The League of Patriotic Lawyers has given the Edo State Commissioner of Police 24 hours to arrest and commence prosecution of all the street urchins behind this barbaric, inhuman, wicked, ungodly and unacceptable act, whose video has gone viral on the social media.

“Failure to unravel the perpetrators would lead to serious legal consequences against the various security agencies, especially the Police and Director of DSS in the state. This ungodly act shows that law and order have broken down in Benin. “We call on the governor, who is undoubtedly unaware of this devilish act, and the Secretary to the State Government, a very hard working and God-fearing man, to ensure that the perpetrators are tracked and punished accordingly.”

“We are not concerned about the merit of this case at this moment, but the exhibition of extreme cruelty which is completely alien to our revered culture and tradition.’’

A 22-year-old single mother, identified as Happiness Mmadu, has been arrested for allegedly trying to sell one of her four-day-old twins in order to pay her hospital bill.

The incident occurred at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Anambra State.

Happiness, it was gathered, allegedly conspired with one Dorothy Sunday in the deal.

A source in the hospital, who preferred not to be mentioned, told Southern City News that Dorothy, who hails from Izzi in Ebonyi State, came to the maternity ward on Wednesday, claiming that Happiness was her younger sister.

It was learnt that their deal went awry when a nurse moved into the ward to dress the bed where the twins were lying only to discover that one of the babies was no longer there.

The source stated, “The nurse raised the alarm and other nurses at the ward went after Dorothy, who was already approaching the exit gate of the hospital.

“The nurses searched her handbag and discovered that Dorothy hid the baby inside the bag. The baby was taken from her and an angry crowd pounced on her, beat her up and stripped her.

“She (Dorothy) was about being set on fire when policemen from the Central Police Station, Nnewi, arrived at the scene and took her away.

“The police also arrested Happiness, the mother of the twins, who said she hails from the Onuimo Local Government Area of Imo State.”

Speaking with our correspondent, Dorothy said Happiness had asked her to come and take the male baby so that she would raise money to pay the N200,000 hospital bill.

She said, “My name is Dorothy Sunday from Izzi in Ebonyi State. I am a trader at the Relief Market, Onitsha. Happiness called me and told me that she had been delivered of twins through caesarean section.

“She (Happiness) was billed over N200,000. She told me that she wanted to sell one of the babies to raise money for the hospital bill and also to take care of herself, because her parents were not aware that she was pregnant in the first place. She also said that she had no one to help her.”

Happiness, however, denied the allegation, stating that Dorothy approached her in the hospital and offered to assist her with some chores since she had nobody around to assist her.

 “Dorothy was at the ward looking after my babies, while I was outside washing my clothes. I was still washing when I was told that Dorothy had put one of the babies in her handbag and was moving out,” Happiness said.

A nurse in the hospital told Southern City News that Happiness was delivered of the babies on January 25, 2019, and was discharged on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.

The nurse explained that Happiness remained in the hospital till Wednesday when the incident occurred.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident and said that the baby was recovered in good condition.

Mohammed said, “At about 5.50 pm, police detectives attached to the Central Police Station, Nnewi, arrested one Dorothy Sunday, 35 years, from Izzi in Ebonyi State.

“The suspect sneaked into the Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, and stole a five-day-old twin baby boy at the maternity ward of the hospital when the mother of the baby, one Happiness Mmadu, 22 years, from Uruagu, Nnewi, went to the hospital’s compound to wash her clothes.”

Mohammed said the suspect would be charged to court after investigation.


I only touched her private parts, I didn’t penetrate – Motorcyclist arrested for defiling seven-year-old cousin

Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a commercial motorcyclist, Itoro Udoh, for allegedly defiling his seven-year-old cousin.

The victim is the daughter of Udoh’s elder brother.

City Round learnt that Udoh, his brother, the girl, her stepmother and stepbrothers lived in an apartment comprising a living room and a bedroom in the Yaba area of Lagos.

While the couple slept in the bedroom, 25-year-old Udoh, the minor and her stepbrothers shared the living room.

On the night the minor was allegedly assaulted, the suspect was said to have returned home drunk and met the children asleep. He reportedly undressed the girl and had sex with her.

The victim was said to have screamed, waking up her stepmother who took her to the bedroom. It was learnt that her father was not around that night.

Our correspondent gathered that when the stepmother probed into the reason why she had screamed, she revealed what Udoh did to her.

The stepmother thereafter reported the incident to the police at Sabo Police Station and Udoh was apprehended. The case was later transferred to the Gender Unit of the state police command in Ikeja. The stepmother told the police that by the time she got to the living room that night in response to the scream, she met the victim naked and Udoh half-naked.

She said, “We live in an apartment with a bedroom and a parlour. The parlour is very big so we partitioned it with a curtain. The children slept on one side while Itoro (Udoh) slept on the other side. Itoro came back from work that night. Around 1am, I heard my stepdaughter screaming. I stood up and rushed to check on her. I met her on the bed naked. I checked where my husband’s brother was and saw him half-naked. Initially, when I asked the girl what happened, she was afraid to talk. I asked her who removed her clothes and she said it was Uncle Itoro. She told me Uncle Itoro put his manhood inside her ‘bumbum’ (private parts). My husband was on duty that night.

“In the morning, she complained that she could feel pain in her ‘bumbum’. When I checked her private parts, there were bloodstains there. I called my husband on the phone and informed him about it. Then I reported the matter to the police. The girl is seven years old.”

In his statement, Udoh denied that he penetrated the minor. He, however, admitted to have touched the minor’s private parts. The native of Akwa Ibom State blamed his action on drunkenness.

He said, “I came to Lagos in November 2018 and started living with my elder brother. I stayed with his wife and three children. I am an okada rider (commercial motorcyclist) and I operate around Ojuelegba. It was my brother who bought the motorcycle for me.

“I got home around 11pm. I was already drunk. I shared a room with my brother’s children. When I entered, I removed the girl’s pants and put my finger in her private parts. The girl shouted and my brother’s wife rushed in. I did not penetrate her, I only used my finger. My brother’s wife asked me what happened but I did not answer her. I was arrested by the police the following day.”

 The suspect was subsequently arraigned at an Ogba Magistrates’ Court on one count of defilement.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Benson Emuerhi, told the court that the offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

The charge read, “That you, Itoro Udoh, on January 15, 2019, at 3am, in Yaba, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile a seven-year-old girl, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”

The prosecutor also tendered a remand application to the court, detailing how Udoh allegedly committed the offence.

The application prayed that the defendant be remanded in Kirikiri prison and the case file be duplicated and sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs O. Sule-Amzat, did not take the plea of the defendant.

She held that Udoh be remanded in prison custody pending the outcome of the DPP’s advice and adjourned the case till April 8, 2019.
